Prince Charming Quilt

If you've been around here for a while, you might have figured out that I LOVE shopping for fabric. And most of the time I really don't have any idea what I'm going to do with the fabric I buy... I fold it, stack it on my shelf, and wait for inspiration to strike.

And that's exactly what happened with Tula Pink's Prince Charming. I just knew I had to have it, but I'd be darned if I knew what I wanted to make with it. So it sat... waiting for the right project. Whatever I made had to be something with nice big pieces... wouldn't want a quilt full of headless Frog Princes, right?

While wondering around International Quilt Festival last Fall I found the perfect pattern! Fat Quarter Frolic by Larisa Key Designs. The pieces range in size from 3.5" x 5.5" to 8.5" x 16.5" ... no headless Frog Princes here!

The pattern went together fast! A few late nights while hubby was away on business and I had the quilt cut and pieced. I wanted something special for the quilting, and I knew right where to go... Joanna aka Designs by Laura Jo. I think this is the third quilt she has worked on for me... I love each one more than the last! And I never hesitate to offer up Joanna's name whenever someone mentions needing a quilt longarmed... her work is fantastic!

Love the pattern. I am always looking for fat quarter friendly patterns where my large scale fabrics can shine.
